Often we have team members who are studying for a qualification in their chosen career field, we have team members who are ‘just passing through whilst travelling’ and others who are working in hospitality until they decide what they want to do as their ‘real job’. Hospitality is a sector that has such a varied skill set, and we are always keen to help develop our team and their skill set to allow them to have the best opportunities at whatever they decide to do long term! We have been lucky enough to have some of those team members who were just passing through, studying, or figuring out what they wanted to do, stay with us and they have been integral in helping us deliver a great service to our customers!

We also have team members who know hospitality is where they want to be, they have worked their way around the world, around the restaurant to gain experience, and some have studied hospitality or management and see their careers in hospitality long term.

Whatever the reason the team have decided to work in hospitality we have a responsibility to support them in their continued learning and professional development, part of our commitment to our Team Charter is

  • Train, develop, upskill and support you with your own professional development through a variety of industry-recognised channels
  • Challenge, encouraging you to be the best version of yourself at all times


We are currently working with SD Consultancy to offer apprenticeships to our team, we are very pleased to share that Ben at Cannonball Restaurant & Bar and Nico at Contini George Street are participating in the professional cookery qualification. This is a huge achievement and we are very proud to be apart of their personal development journey! 

This is Ben
